Alternate titles for this post include “Reasons You Need to Buy this Dress ASAP” and “Reasons Dave Should Let Me Get It In Every Color” :) Ever since I ordered this striped swing dress (right before publishing this post), I’ve been wearing it at least once a week. It hits all of my current must-haves: non-maternity but has plenty of room for the bump, comfy and breathable enough for hot summer days, an under $40 price tag, and the ability to be dressed up for church or down for work and weekends. Feeling both comfortable and put-together is becoming more of a challenge by the day, but this dress is still going strong and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. I also can’t wait to wear it post-baby–I think it’ll be really cute with a cardigan and booties in the fall!
Thanks so much to Robyn Van Dyke for snapping these photos! When a photographer friend offers to take outfit pictures for you after a fun dinner together, you definitely do not say no :)
Swing dress (comes in nine colors, I sized up for the length and am wearing a Medium), purse (similar shape here and print here), gold ankle-strap mini-wedges (similar, and on super sale!), earrings (comes in 14 colors ), gold bangle, gold arrow bracelet (similar)
P.S. Just a heads up, the Nordstrom anniversary sale opened to non-card holders tomorrow! There are tons of deals to be had on upcoming fall clothes, shoes, and accessories. Since I’m a sale shopper to the max, I love being able to stock up on things before the season starts rather than at the end! If you’re interested, I rounded up a few of my favorite pieces on my Shop page :)
